About Northwestern Lake Riding Stables

Northwestern Lake Riding Stables has been offering horseback riding excursions for more than 45 years! After beginning his first ranch in Utah, the late founder Boyd decided it was time to move on to Washington State. He hated how built up his area of Utah had become, so he settled on a gorgeous piece of property in Skamania County. Surrounded by the Cascade Mountain Range, excursions here will take you up and down hills, over creeks, and through stunning landscapes. You’ll probably even see some Columbia River Gorge wildlife!
